Default ATi 6950 with Ageia Physx card?

I ordered a Ageia PhysX 128MB PCIe card, I mostly want to see what I am missing from games like Batman but have a few questions?

Anyone here running a ATI-Ageia PhysX combo does it work?

I am using Vista 64bit any driver issues?

Any performance issues?

I also wonder about heat issues, I figure the card stays static until it is in use so should not give off too much heat while not in use, am I correct on this?

Hmm... I tried, but I wanted to run Win7, so no go.

If anyone is interested, I have the PCI card for sale for a price of a shipping and a box of chocolates.

I didn't think you could buy Ageia cards anymore. Anyway, hate to be the bearer of bad news but physx games don't have Ageia card support...you need an nVidia card to run hardware accelerated physx.

Oh man..

Ageia physics cards don't work anymore. You have to use an nVidia card - and they cut support in ATI setups.

There's like 1 game where an Ageia card still works and PhysX does not, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
As said above, you need an Nvidia card for PhysX, but if you want to use it with an AMD GPU you need hacked drivers.

Damn, well that explains the only $8 cost for new ones on a certain big auction site.

Maybe I can use those hacked drivers mentioned so it thinks it is a nVidia physx. I imagine the physx chip on both it and the Nvidia card are close to the same.

That still won't work. nVidia took the IP from Ageia and transfered everything to work with their GPUs. The Ageia card uses its own chip which is completely different than an nVidia GPU.
